Coronation Street reveal when axed star Bruno Langley’s final scenes will air

The soap have terminated the contract of the actor who plays Todd Grimshaw amid allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct

Coronation Street has revealed that Bruno Langley’s final scenes will air at Christmas.

As bosses confirmed earlier today, the actor has had his contract at the ITV soap terminated following an internal inquiry.

The announcement came amid allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct made against him.

The 34-year-old – who has played Todd Grimshaw since 2001 – will not film any new scenes for the ITV soap.

Upcoming episodes that have already been filmed will still include storylines featuring his character.

It is presumed that Todd will be involved in the Pat Phelan plot, as that continues to develop.

“Scenes featuring Bruno will continue to be screened until December 24th. These were filmed before our inquiry started,” a show insider told Radio Times online.

“Subsequent storylines beyond this point have been rewritten.”

The actor was accused of sexual assault by a woman in a nightclub in Manchester earlier this month.

It’s believed that Bruno was out with other members of the Coronation Street cast watching their former colleague, Craig Charles, perform a DJ set at the venue.

Last weekend The Sun reported that ITV had launched an internal investigation after the woman filed an official complaint the day after she claims the alleged assault occurred.

It was then revealed that Greater Manchester Police were investigating an alleged incident which took place at Manchester’s Band on the Wall nightclub.

Bruno strongly denies claims of wrongdoing.

In a statement, he said: “Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street. Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream.

“Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour.

“I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period. I will make a further statement in due course, and when I am able to do so.”
